Rosehip Oil Unrefined
CAS No. 84603-93-0
Rosehip Oil is harvested from the fruit, also known as the hip of roses. Our Unrefined Natural Rosehip Oil comes from the Ukraine, Rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, unrefined rosehip oil offers natural antioxidant properties. Having a slight astringency, rosehip oil is considered to be a "dry" oil, soaking into the skin easily, leaving no greasy residue.
Rosehip Oil contains Vitamin A as well as Vitamin E and is rich in linoleic and linolenic acids. It also has a higher percentage of naturally occurring carotenoids, resulting in a dark reddish orange color. Because it is unrefined it has a pleasant, but noticeable odor, characteristic of this oil. It is gentle enough to use straight from the bottle as a moisturizer or incorporated in smaller percentages in antiaging formulations. Used at 5% in a formulation, it will lend a pleasing yellow tint to the final product. Note, Unrefined Rose Hip Oil, due to its high carotenoids content, has the potential to stain skin and linens or washcloths if used in high percentages in a formulation. Take this into consideration when formulating.
Rosehip oil shoud be kept in the refrigerator to extend its shelf life. When using it in products, add an antioxidant like Rosemary Oleoresin Extract to protect the oil and prolong your product's shelf life as well.
